Was going through files tonight in archive room 1 and ran across a storage tube marked CX-2000, I thought it was strange as I didn't have it marked in my inventory list.   Thinking is was mis-labeled I opened it to look at the contents, sure enough they were sheets of cx-2000 mechanical drawings, but then something caught my eye, the sheets said Without Joysticks.  I was like WTH !?!?!

 

Sure Enough Atari in Sunnyvale did a version without joysticks.  No physical units have yet to ever surface, but this is a rather exciting find nontheless.

Did it have some kind of integrated joystick-like devices or other type of controller integrated into the console? Seems like I've seen something like that in very early stage console prototypes.

I assume it means you would just plug in joysticks instead of them being integrated, like a regular Junior.
